[Sponsored] Enjoy dinner and a film under the stars
Screening 33 fresh new releases, golden oldies and critically acclaimed alternative films, American Express Openair Cinemas offers movie fanatics much more than the average cinematic experience. From October 4-November 11, the lawn of South Bank’s Rainforest Green will be taken over by a packed program of live entertainment, dining, music and dog dates. Yes, that’s right, dogs.
If your plus one cancels last minute, you can replace them every Wednesday night with a furry companion. Proud puppy parents can also snuggle up to their own wonder dogs while they quote the cue cards in Love Actually, thrill to Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born, or watch box office hits like Bohemian Rhapsody or Dirty Dancing. Check the roster of special events including an open-captioned screening of First Man.
You’re sure to work up an appetite with all the excitement, so grab a slice of something covered in cheese from the Italian masters at Salt Meats Cheese. They're curating a menu for the evening, complemented by gourmet ice cream from Häagen-Dazs. Beer will come by way of 4 Pines, there’ll be fine drops from Giesen Wines, refreshing fruity brews from Black Devil Cider plus Pimms aperitifs.
Your American Express Card membership is your golden ticket to the exclusive lounge area. You’ll receive the VIP treatment, complete with a comfortable bean bag chair, blanket, movie snacks and the best view in the house. There’s also a tidy 15 per cent off selected tickets for members, plus access to the American Express Garden for sunset tipples.
